Starting Pitcher Zach Eflin
Zach Eflin hasn’t spent the entire season in the majors, but since his promotion, he has been lights-out for the Phillies. Through his first three starts this season, Eflin has a 1.89 ERA, 0.684 WHIP, and 3.67 strikeout-to-walk ratio. He leads all Philadelphia starters with 10 or more innings pitched in those categories.
Eflin’s stats could very well change by the time the selection for the All-Star Game rolls around. His knees could flare up again and he could miss the entire season. However, for the time being, he is one of Philadelphia’s better starters and a possible option for the All-Star Game.
Seeing Eflin make the All-Star Game would be a great sign for the team’s rebuild. The 23-year old would be the second straight Phillie to make an All-Star Game in his sophomore season. Having a young, growing player versus a veteran making the roster is a lot more exciting to see.
